i was they today also, we are building a new course, and this is what we got done today

First we got a trail made - from #8 green to #9 Tee

next, we got #9 - Tee, RH side of the fairway, and green all cleared.
That means #9 is now playable !!!!

last but not least, we got #1 Tee cleared to the Fairway
#1 is now playable !!!!

then we had a walking tour of the course, to install some of the old Tee signs near where we can play from, for now anyway.

Here is me, mrenzweiler, vizi25 and coop1 restacking some of the creek walls at Idlewild after they fell during this hard winter. This is from hole 3 but we worked on hoe 2 also

We are "they" - A bunch of rec players who have worked on Idlewild and adopted Holes A, 18 and short E. Most people in the Nati don't even know who we are

Well done. How was the course yesterday? Still quite soggy I presume.

Not sure how the course was. Didn't play; only worked on Hole 2 and 3. Did see about 6 golfers who just watched us as we worked. No thanks or help

nothing too crazy but there was a soco bottle laying on hole 1 at st peter riverside that i was sick of seeing. it was there since last fall. plus countless beer cans/bottles and general litter.



this is from holes 1-8. cant believe there was that much trash. going out sometime later this week to take care the rest of the course. it looks a helluva better. there is literally no upkeep there. i decided to take initiative and make the course a little more enjoyable to play at. plus it looks bad to the walkers that walk the trails within the complex that probably think DGers are a bunch of beer drinkin **** heads.

next step is trying to get some people together to get concrete teepads in there or at least rubber matts, and proper signage. have a few people on board already.

also thanks to everyone who does a thankless job of keeping the courses nice and a ton of behind the scene maintenance that everyone appreciates.
